Irving: Cynthia Ann and Quanah Parker Exhibit

March 4, 2017 (All day) to May 21, 2017 (All day)
Quanah Parker Exhibit

This traveling exhibit of forty rarely seen photographs document the stories of Cynthia Ann and Quanah Parker, two important names in U.S. frontier history. Much can to be learned from the dramatic story of these two courageous individuals. In 1836, a Comanche raiding party took Cynthia Ann from her family and over the following years, she became wife to a Comanche chief and mother to three children, including Quanah.  After Cynthia Ann was taken back by Texas Rangers, Quanah became one of the most important Comanche leaders both in war and peace.

Organized and toured by the Texas Lakes Trail Region and the Texas Trail of Fame.
